FYI Body: DEAR COLLEAGUES,

I AM CURRENTLY WORKING WITH A MAJOR PUBLISHER ON PRODUCING AN EDITED
VOLUME ON THE VARIOUS LANGUAGE-RELATED PHENOMENA ATTENDING THE
ARAB REVOLUTIONS. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN CONTRIBUTING A PAPER TO THIS
VOLUME, PLEASE SEND ME A ONE PAGE ABSTRACT SUMMARIZING YOUR TOPIC,
BASIC PROPOSITION(S), RESEARCH DATA, AND EXPECTED CONCLUSIONS. THE
CENTRAL THEME OF THIS VOLUME IS LANGUAGE, SO ALL PROPOSALS NEED TO
MAINTAIN THEMATIC RELEVANCE BY EXPLORING THE VARIOUS WAYS THE REVOLTS
HAVE IMPACTED THE ARABIC LANGUAGE (OR OTHER LANGUAGES IF A CASE CAN
BE MADE). FIELDS OF INVESTIGATION ARE OPEN, HOWEVER, AND INCLUDE
LINGUISTICS, COMMUNICATION, ORTHOGRAPHY, SEMIOTICS, DISCOURSE ANALYSIS,
TRANSLATION STUDIES, ETC. THIS WILL BE A PEER-REVIEWED WORK, SO RESEARCH
RIGOR IS EXPECTED. PAPERS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ABOUT 10,000 WORDS ON
AVERAGE. PLEASE SEND YOUR PROPOSAL TOME, MUHAMED OSMAN AL KHALIL,
AT MUHAMED.ALKHALIL@NYU.EDU. DEADLINE FOR PROPOSAL CONSIDERATION IS
JAN 31, 2011. SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR FINISHED PAPERS WILL BE AUGUST
31, 2011.

KIND REGARDS,

MUHAMED OSMAN AL KHALIL, PH.D.
DIRECTOR OF ARABIC STUDIES
